Lighting when taking pics of Embossed Bottles

I have had trouble when I want to take pictures of embossed bottles. I can't seem to get the right light to pull the detail in the glass.
I have tried a box with a top light. Taking pics against a white back ground and taken pics out side using natural light. The natural light option seemed to be the best choice but weather conditions make this a challenge at times.
So today I opened up my laptop, opened Power Point and opened a blank template. I ran the program to show a plane white screen. I set the laptop on it's side and took a few pics. It worked fantastic!
So thought I would share in case others have the same issue.

those are great pics! And awsome bottles too! When i take pictures i usualy walk around different rooms of my house or outside depending on the time of day and what the lighting is like to see what works best on any given day. Heres one i took in my car the other day that turned out pretty nice (imo).

Cool, glad it worked. I'm not a photographer but there are probably a few manual settings: ISO shutter speed and something else (can't recall). If your pics turned out that well in auto mode, using that background, they sure turned out well. Cheers.
